Is your argument really that since you traded in 4 "used" copies of a hard to find in new condition game that it must not be hard to find? Where's the correlation? You make it sound like just b/c a game dropped in price at retail stores before it went OOP that it's not rare. Wonder what you think about Pokemon games, Bayonetta (Wii U, before the Switch announcement), or Rock Band Band in a Box (actually, any Rock Band).

I don't think you're thinking much when you decided to type that.

How’d you get $300?

Months ago.

Since last years slim 500’s were $199 with Kohl’s cash back I’d figure it’d be similar this year, and even better they’re 1TBs with a pack in game. Wanted to unload my loud ass Pro anyway. I got the Xbox X so any PS4 I’d rebuy wouldn’t be my main system.

I can confirm by looking at the new Dollar General ad that the GameStop card deal definitely ended on 11/10. It's now been replaced with a different deal where you can save $5 on a $30 purchase or save $10 on a $50 purchase of restaurant cards including Applebee's, Chili's, Domino's, IHOP, Taco Bell, and Wendy's cards. So, in other words, it's good for carb loading before standing in line at GameStop on Black Friday...or making the possibility of a cardiac event that much more likely. That deal ends on 11/17.

Dollar General stores have sent out a memo to not sell gift cards and not to honor the prices. Stores have signs on their doors that it's a mistake.

Oh my bad. It just shows the sign on a dollar General saying they aren't honoring the gift cards.

That's when you take the ad to Target for a price match! ;)

As far as I know, no store PMs gift card promotions.

Found a Spiderman PS4 CE just sitting on a shelf at my local GS.  Should I pick it up or does anyone think there might be a price drop this holiday season?  Got coupons to burn so was thinking that might be a good candidate.

I'm sorry, this has probably been answered several times before...but do pre-owned power up rewards certificates work online as well as in-store?

No. There's different certificates that can only be used online.

My son has discovered Pokémon cards. Is the current 25% off for pro days about the best deal I will find this holiday season on them? I have lots of GS trade credit and would prefer to get him some cards there for as cheap as possible.


Last holiday season GS did a B1G2 free on collectables and some Pokemon boosters and boxes were included. Bought lots for my daughter. May keep an eye out in case they repeat it.

Well damn. I bought Firewall Zero the other day after hearing the decent reviews, but honestly, its not very good. Graphics are terrible, controls are bad, hit detecting is all over the place. Just didn't like it. Was hoping I could return it to gamestop since it was the "new" copy from the store shelves that they had already opened, but as I assumed, not going to happen. I still don't understand how they get away with that.

Sorry if this has been asked but if I buy one of the games on sale today for store pickup and don't pick it up until tomorrow, I won't get the sale price, correct?

 

Thanks

Thanks for the info. I picked up a Pikachu/Evee pokeball set and a Pikachu pin set today. I’ll keep my eye out for this b1g2 deal if they have it again this year. I’m sure with him being 6 that many of them will get lost/destroyed.

anybody know if we can use rewards certs on pro day deals. Might go pick up injustice 2 legendary if I can take off the $10 from red dead.

No PUR certificates & Pro Day deals never stack.

You will have to get employees to override.

Certs are like cash so you should be able to spend as such. The employees can manually deduct the amount.

I also recommend only buying the one item at a time with certs since their computer shows it is redeemed but you’ll have to show them it doesn’t take it off.

Definitely YMMV for this. I went to get a new game on sale with my $10 cash cert from buying RDR2, but was shot down. I thought they might do the override for me, but one of them pulled out the ad to read the terms. I decided to just skip the game for now and just used the cert for a psn card.

Xbox One X is apparently dropping to $399 from 11/18 yo 11/26. Hopefully we get another trade promo for consoles before black Friday (as I bet they're gonna have x1s and PS4 slim for $199, and we may not see another console trade promo for awhile).

if youre getting a ps4 i would definitely say get a slim because if they dont do backwards compatibility youll just be buying it to play a few ps4 games before next gen replaces it



and also, if ps5 is backwards compatible, its highly likely that those games will end up playing at ps4 pro settings on the ps5.


Who in their right mind sees the PS4 library and think there is “a few” games worth playing?

There are years worth of games just based on exclusives let alone everything else

I  traded in my 500GB XB1 S today and got $175 for it even though the site/apps estimates its worth at $100. I'm not complaining but is there some kind of promotion I missed or something?

Website shows $175 for XB1 S 500GB.

I see that now, didn't really check it again when I generated the estimate at like 2am. Is that a bit odd for the trade value to go back up though?

if someone is looking to get a ps4 in 2018 then they either have an xbox one or a pc
